As a Latino student seeking a journalism major at the University of Nevada Reno I have created a blog NVlatino that will focus on the life of Latino students and their struggles. This blog will provide information on UNR Latino events, programs and resources available and personal experiences that will help Latino student in academic success during the pursuit of a higher education.
I will be graduating with a Bachelors in Broadcast Journalism and double majoring in Spanish Translate. I have interned at Entravision Communications Cooperation which is the main station for local Spanish news and radio in Northern Nevada. I’ve also worked Spanish radio for two years in the past and was a senior reporter for the Truckee Meadows Community College ECHO Newspaper. My focus since very early has been the Latino community, especially locally. As a student at the University of Nevada Reno I would like to provide a Blog linked to a variety of social media networks to deliver news and current issues of the Latino community more-so in reference to academic opportunities and available resources through the University of Nevada Reno.
